What's Next For Former Centenial Hill Bar And Grill?
The double murder inside the old Rose Supper Club last weeekend has residents of Montgomery's Centenial Hill neighborhood unnerved. Despite some significant improvements in the area, they say they are worried about the killings and other violence. And they want to know what the city plans to do.
Mayor Todd Strange says he's angry about the murders and one killing is one too many. Meanwhile, a petition is being passed around to tear down the building where the Centenial Hill Bar and Grill (the former Rose Supper Club) used to be.
In the case of Centenial Hill Bar and Grill, where Troy University student, Kimberle Johnson, and rapper, Doe B. were shot and killed over the weekend, Strange says that business has been shut down.
Strange says the city plans to inspect the building soon. Montgomery Police say there have been arrests in all but six of the city's 49 murders during 2013.
